I was curious about this.
In the US, it is customary to bathe at least once a day... rarely do most people fail on this, and many bathe more frequently. I personally bathe once a day, almost without fail (i failed today tho). i like showers, and i usually take them in under 15 minutes. i would take them faster but im usually tired when i shower and i often blank out and stare into space and dont realize it.
I remember reading that in Japan they usually take 3 baths a day. I personally find that kind of excessive compulsive.
My mother told me when she lived in Europe in the '70s (in germany, tho travled around), that many women in Germany didnt shave and it was common pratice to take only one bath a week.
Were these things true or are they still true?
How often do people in your region bathe? how often do YOU bathe and how long does it take ya?
